8. Single-leg deadlifts
‘Do you even lift?’ Well now you will. This is the perfect exercise to test and build both muscle and balance. You are of course going to need dumbbells, and if they aren’t available you can use filled water bottles.
Just make sure that you aren’t dizzy before trying them.
How to do it
1. Start off with standing up straight with the dumbbells in your hand, then with a bent knee pull your torso towards the ground, and have one leg suspend backwards in the air.
2. Again make sure not to strain yourself, and when you feel like you’ve found your stretch limit go back to your initial position.
3. You can do 3 sets of this.
9. Dumbbell Row
These are relatively easy but have a great effective on your core, arms and back.
Get some dumbbells, bottles or books that you can lift with ease. And while you lift the dumbbells make sure to hold them from the end of the handles, not the center.
How to do it
1. Grab your dumbbells, and bend your knees down a bit push your butt out and hunch your back forward in a straight line. Make sure not arch your back, and put too much weight on your back.
2. Then proceed to push the dumbbells forward and lift them back into the initial position. Really work those arms and back.
3. You can go a little excessive with these; just make sure not to hurt your back.
4. Try about 3 sets of 10 reps.
